What did your 10 month old [or similar age] eat yesterday? If some of you would be kind enough to post re your child's typical daily menu, I'd be really interested to read them. And hopefully reassured aswell!

Thank you!

ds3 is 9.5 months and yesterday he had:

7oz bottle
Weetabix (probably only half)

7oz bottle
Biscuit (organic baby biscuit type thing)

Pot of organic apple and banana
2 petit filous

Rice cakes and a biscuit

Sweet potato, cod, babycorn, mange tout and peas
Had a go at a banana (not sure how much went in his mouth though!)

7oz bottle

This is fairly typical.

OK bad mother here - sod the formula we are on full fat stuff! The other two were fine at 10m so why not
(mind you he is a big boy weight at birth 11lb 3oz) but as I say the other two are fine and were 8lb 7oz and 8lb 12oz.)

Yesturday was weetabix mixed with some heinz summer fruit and a yoghurt for breakfast. oh and chews some toast too.
Lunch was sandwiches, squash and a banana.
tea was a jar of spagetti, some organix thingy.

I hope this doesn't all sound too lax but having 3 under 5 you do become a little 'whatever' type of thing!!!

Breakfast - 1/2 a weetabix
Mid Morning - bottle and biscuit

ds is 10 months old. Yesterday he ate one organic weetabix with a banana & formula milk plus one large beaker of formula milk.

For lunch he had 6 cubes of Chicken & mushroom gratin, one potato & a cup of garden peas and a few sips of water. For pudding he had a 1/3 of a pot of greek yoghurt mixed with mango & papaya.

Mid afternoon he had a medium sized beaker of formula milk

For tea he had 2 mozzarella cheese & tomato potato skins (skins only used as a container)plus 1/2 a cup of water.

Before bed he had 180ml of formula milk in a bottle.

He is a very good eater but does go off food when he is teething.

Forgot to say that he also had ricecakes with his lunch & cheese breadsticks with his tea.

OK, well my dd decided at the age of 7 months that she doesn't like being fed from a spoon, so I nearly always have to spread anything she can't pick up herself onto some sort of bread / rice cake product so that she can pick it up.

Recently she has deigned to eat porridge and yoghurts off a spoon though. Yesterday I realised she was happy to eat some veg mash not off a piece of pitta bread, which is normally how we manage it, but, (get this!), off the nose of a Duplo giraffe!!!!

So, yesterday she had:

Bf 6oz formula from bottle
1 slice wholemeal toast with butter and a banana spread on it.
A few mouthfuls porridge with raisins off a spoon
Some dry no salt/sugar rice crispies

mid morning
A few oz formula from a beaker (6oz were on offer, but we are having beaker battles at the moment)

Wholemeal pitta bread containing butter nut squash mash
Some pieces of cheese
Some pieces of pear
A mini baby yoghurt
Very very dilute grape juice & water from beaker

Mid afternoon
6 fl oz formula from bottle
A homemade (by dh, not me!) plum / oat biscuit

Mini homemade pizza (another handy veg finger food!) Homemade, by me, for a change
Some pieces of apple
Very small piece of buttered malt loaf
Baby yoghurt
Very very dilute juice / water from beaker

8 oz milk from bottle

But some days she has a few nibbles of cheese and fruit and that's it!

Thanks everyone.

Actually, thinking about it, most of the breakfast toast and lunch pitta bread ended up on the floor...
